Project ECHO

What is Project ECHO?

Learn from Substance Use Disorder Experts!

What: ECHO (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) is an opportunity for providers across the state to get specialist knowledge, clinical advice, and recommendations from substance use and pain management specialists in a virtual learning network.

More about ECHO: ECHO uses videoconferencing technology to connect addiction and pain management specialists with providers to discuss de-identified cases related to substance use disorders. Each ECHO call consists of a brief didactic presentation followed by a clinical case discussion from a provider and recommendations from the team for treatment.

Registration for each session generally ends four days before the call takes place. Register early and avoid the last-minute rush!
